On Saturday, The Signal published an article in the Home section titled "Saltwater is growing pool trend," which extolled the popularity and benefits of using salt to sanitize swimming pools.

Your readers should be advised that since December 2005, it has been illegal to build or convert a swimming pool within the boundaries of the Santa Clarita Valley Sanitation District to a salt-based sanitation system.

You may reference the ordinance at this web site: .

The reduction of chlorides in the waste water discharge is a serious issue in this valley. Our local sanitation district is under a strict state mandate to reduce chloride levels below 100 milligrams per liter.

The sanitation district banned salt water pool systems in a valiant effort to meet this requirement. It is important that all the citizens of our valley work together to meet this mandate by eliminating salt-based swimming pools and water softeners.
